Hi Peter,
Gotta love those Mustangs! :-)  Very cool plane to say the least!
Too bad you weren't around when I did my inaugural flight on my 76th
birthday, day! "Great fight flight!" 
I shot down 5  Messerschmitt's! :-) Yeah, :-) all in an hour! True, that's
where the photo of me upside down came from . :-) During that battle!  ;-)

While in the B-25 nose turret, my Leica's rangefinder wouldn't line up.  
My first thought: Oh, no!  Did I bump it out of alignment while going 
through the crawlway?  But no, I'd slid through the crawlway on my back 
with the camera safely on my stomach. Once I got out of the plane, all 
was well.  Then it hit me. Dummy, the turret glass is curved!

shoehorning himself into small spaces. Enjoy!
